The Soviets saw chess as embodying their revolutionary ideals. It was a game of skill, and the USSR prided itself on its intellectual talents. It was cheap, and anyone could play it. And to Soviet leaders, its back-and-forth dynamic reflected the dialectical concept of history espoused by Marxism.
This beautiful chess set was made in Russia-Moscow, from 1970’s. Chess board is really clean, in perfect condition. Chess figures are made of wood and nice shaped, seems really vintage. The black king doesn't have crest unfortunately, but it's not really discernible. You can see in the chess board production details with blue stamp, which means "Original Soviet".
This beautiful chess set is absolutely suitable for chess FANS, Retro lovers or collectors. Maybe it can be gifted to your near or dear one.
